During 2011, in March, Dustcontrol Inc. was selected, in hard competition with Nederman, as the preferred vendor to supply vacuum for the production plant for the General Atomics new unmanned aircrafts production unit.
The unmanned aircrafts have had a tremendous success in sales to the US defence industry and the production needs to be increased since several different models has been developed for different tasks.
The Dustcontrol system is used in the forming and finishing areas, mainly connected to finishing grinders and sanders. Up to a 100 operators can work simultaneously in this system.
Great energy savings, compared to a conventional vacuum system, is gained by incorporating the technique of the Dustcontrol Green system.
Since the material, consisting of different types of epoxy, carbon fiber and surface treatment, is considered combustible, Dustcontrol dimensioned and supplied a state of the art explosion protection system, to satisfy the customer’s demands.
